It's weird how Kochman gets attacked every time he comes over here! Just the usual hazing routine at the friendly Archive Forum, I guess.
I think he has every right to tell folks about his forum - people can't join unless they hear about it first....and his site needs more members.
I would also encourage people to check it out if they haven't seen it. There's a small population, but more Dead-related posts than, say, deadhook. It's even informative, in spots.

But, in fairness, I also have some complaints about the Lost Sailor's Pub...
1) You have to register to see any messages.
2) Once you register, you may receive spam emails from forumup.it
3) I hate the ads.
4) People's avatars & smilies often take up more space than their actual messages! It gets tiresome looking at that stuff.
5) There's a distinct shortage of Pigpen-era fans - though Brent lovers will find plenty of company.

If you use firefox get "ad block plus" to get rid of the ads...
I highly recommend firefox for those who are still using IE.

Skies, no not making fun of you, I've enjoyed what you've added to the forum.
It's like the lyric in Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven; "cause you know sometimes words have two meanings". I've heard that idioms are one of the most difficult parts of the english language and this place has to be much worse than average with all of the cryptical references (pun intended). I sometimes have problems figuring out what a person is talking about here, for example; in the thread "Obama's favourite opener" I could not figure out what West Cumberland Blues was refering to with the encore of "BDP". After ckecking through my handy bookmarks to no avail, I resorted to google and came up with "Boogie Down Productions" , something dealing with hip-hop music, so I stopped right there and never asked for clarification.
Anyway here are some of my favorite bookmarks, may they aid you in decifering the forum and lead you on to more dead knowledge;

NedtheHead:thanks for infos.that much info,owerwhelming ! I'lltry it soon .Meanwhile ,if a american deadhead CAN have problem at time undestanding the cryptical talk of other deadheads ,then imagine how it is for us,deadheads from elsewhere ! It"s like shiny stones glitters when only an expert can tell if it"s a real gem or just a polished piece of rock . I know dead.net,for almost 3 weeks now and I like .so ,there are other real deadheads sites oninternet besides David Gans's ?

I've butted heads plenty with kochman, but I still like the forum.

Also, I don't get any spam from forump.it, and i don't even really notice the ads. I think it's cuz I'm using Firefox.

Oh, and I love the Pigpen era. But there is definitely more 80s and 90s talk than you usually see, if you think that's a bad thing.

"It's weird how Kochman gets attacked every time he comes over here!"

I was thinking that over myself and then recalled his past posts. In reviewing them it is easy to see why he gets the treatment he does.

Is it deserved? Most of the time...
(edit: some of the time was changed to most of the time...I forgot about his ongoing "tips" on how to dl soundboards from this site which is the #1 NO-NO and crosses the line...I probably should have saved time and just posted this:
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=231307)

Should people check out the site? sure...I have heard some good things about the place...

Of course he would get more members if he just posted "normally" with the lost sailor's link at the bottom of his post and without the fanfare. His anti-triumvirate (cliff, wharf and arb) shyte gets a little tiring to say the least. If the site is so good people will gravitate towards it without needing to go into attack mode towards this forum's members to obtain new members.

btw: last time I looked all of the dead forums I belong to are "completely free" so I am not sure if that works as a selling point.

Ah, but there are dead forums out there that ask for money. I just wanted to make the distinction that LSP will never ask for money.

"5) There's a distinct shortage of Pigpen-era fans - though Brent lovers will find plenty of company."

Excellent! We're shipping Dire off to this forum immediately! Did the Eagles have any choice about Vick? Did the Suns have any chance with Shaq? Did the Bucks really win the Alcindor coin toss?

Anyhow, this will be one of those salary cap moves in which we just dump an old timer to cut loose a high priced player far past his prime. They may even sign and cut him...

Sorry, Dire--biz is biz.

Don't you ever sleep? I vote we send Cliff over there to debate the Brent era. Perhaps he will return enlightened to the joy of the '80's.

Nice families ,youths ,tourists to the max ,packed allover ,like sardines .Good vibes,but I prefer GD shows and deadheads parking lots !

Hmmm, that's quite a curse.

OK, deal's off--you didn't pass the physical (right? that's easy enough for us to rig--or do we even have to?--so that you can come back).

So, did you even get out of the "airport terminal" over there @ Lost Sailors before the white courtesy phone rang up asking you to please come back to your original team?

That's mge loyalty for ya!
